What to do when all your avocados ripen at once

Stuck with too many ripe avos? Here's what you can do with them!

I’m sure I’m not the only one who is glowing with happiness that avo season is in full swing! For those of you who also live on this rich gorgeous green superfood, you’ll be able to empathize with the fact that we don’t have to spend half our monthly income on a small pack of 4 – just to get our weekly fix.

Now, the one thing that I’m sure everyone who has bought avocados will agree with, is the annoying incidence when a) all the avos are rock hard or b) when all the avos are ripe and ready all at once (in an ideal world, they would all ripen beautifully one at a time, right?). I’ve been that person before who has eaten avo on toast for a few days in a row and there’s nothing wrong with it. But if you are looking for other, perhaps more interesting ideas of what you can do with them, read on!

I know for some, the idea of eating avo in anything BUT a salad is too outlandish but I really encourage you to give some of these recipes a try!

1. Avocado and berry smoothie – the avo lends a wonderfully creamy texture (in fact you could pop it into any smoothie because it has quite a neutral flavour when added to other foods).

2. Low carb avocado and coconut bread – great for those who are Banting!

3. Steak with avocado salsa and an Asian dressing – perfect for a light meal of protein and healthy fats.

4. Raw chocolate mousse – this recipe is a real hit with vegans because it tastes just like the real thing but without dairy or eggs! The best part? No one will even guess that there is avocado in it!

5. Baby marrow noodles with avocado pesto  – a genius recipe that can be switched up by using regular pasta.

6. Eggs in bacon-wrapped avocado nests – another brilliant Banting meal. Breakfast for the win!

7. Healthy zucchini brownies with avocado frosting - No one will ever know there's avo in the frosting!

Lastly – don’t forget the good ol’ guacamole.
